Geocache Description:

"Neither an obelisk nor a rectangular box nor a dome seemed right on this site or for this purpose. But here, at the edge of the Mississippi River, a great arch seemed right." --Eero Saarinen, St. Louis Arch architect

The Saint Louis Arch Virtual Cache employs St. Louis's favorite catenary structure and St. Louis's first virtual cache all in one big arc of geocaching goodness.

How does it work?
This is a virtual cache, meaning you will be seeking out a physical location without the traditional box of goodies.

** Virtual Cache Requirements have changed **

Construction is completed, and the information required during the construction stages is no longer available, so it's time to post the new 'permanent' requirements to log this virtual.

To claim this virtual, you must journey to the "Entry Plaza" for the Arch Visitors Center. There you will be able to find the necessary information to log this cache. These are the questions you must answer:

  • What company made the Entry Plaza possible?
  • On the metal plaque at the center of the plaza (directly above the information necessary to the previous question), who is being honored and what year was the National Convention?

Please do not post these answers as part of your log, or it will be deleted. Thanks for visiting the St. Louis Arch.  *Previous answers will be accepted until September 30th, 2022.*
